The Hills of Gjern Bakker
Gjern Bakker is visibly marked by rivers of meltwater having flowed through there during the latest Ice Age. Gudenåen flows west of the hills, while the stream of Gjern Å runs south and east of them. Both streams give you a clear idea how large rivers of meltwater ran through this protected Natura 2000 area in ancient times.
You will pass the vantage point Bryggebjerg near Alling Vest when you hike along the Himmelbjergruten. From here, you have the most amazing view of Rosvig and Julsø, and in the far distance, you can see Himmelbjerget.
Sukkertoppen is a 108 m hill and as such, nothing unusual – heightwise, that is. However, the view from the top is sure to take your breath away. From there, you can see a beautiful stretch of Gudenåen, Mossø lake, and the woodland surrounding Sukkertoppen. On its top, the remains of a Viking fortress have been discovered, which makes perfect sense, as the Vikings have been able to see their enemies approaching from afar from there.
